Class Rank Changes?

<p>Currently, I am ranked 3rd in my class. However, this is because of one weighted class that I didn't take last year. I'm going to be taking it this year, and assuming that I do well in it, I should be able to pull my rank up to 1st.</p>

<p>However, would I still put 3rd on the common app? Or should I just put top 10%, as my ranking will not be solidified until presumably after colleges make their decisions concerning me.</p>

<p>Should I have my counselor mention this somewhere in her recommendation or on my transcript or something?</p>

<p>Your updated rank is sent with the Midyear report, which should reflect your grades in regards to this course. Are you sure that taking one class would pull you up 2 slots? I woudln't worry so much about rank at this point. Just kick a** in that class.</p>

<p>Good luck! :)</p>

<p>Click on the yellow question mark for some guidance on this question: "You should report your current Class Rank and GPA, even if they might change later in the school year..."</p>

<p>+1 to what WinstonWolfe said.</p>

<p>Colleges know that your rank and GPA is subject to changing, generally to an upward trend, as opposed to a downward trend. </p>

<p>How competitive is your school & how big is your graduating class size?</p>

<p>Thanks. Sorry-I totally forgot to check the yellow question mark.</p>

<p>My school is very competitive, considering it only has 111 students.</p>
